    If you haven't yet made the trip to National Harbor, you probably have legitimate reasons for it: you're not sure how to get there, where to go, or what to do. All valid. But luckily, we've done the legwork for you — literally! — and scoped out the nabe's best restos, shops, hangout spots, and activities to help you plan the perfect weekend getaway.

    Whether you're driving, taking Metro, or cruising over on a ferry from Old Town Alexandria, we've got an accessible itinerary that covers everything you'll want to do when you arrive — from scarfing what might just be the best pizza in the DMV to discovering an accessories shop that'll make you swoon. Prefer to get your R&R through simpler pleasures? Spend the afternoon soaking up some early fall sunshine while you bask in the breeze off the water — no joke, you might think you've landed in Miami. But, no matter how you choose to spend the day, we promise you'll feel worlds away from D.C. (in a good way!).
